Lodril is known by many names throughout Glorantha. Here are a few of the best known:
Balumbasta is worshiped by the Agimori of Pamaltela. He is the Strong God, Lord of the Fire People.When he was created he rose up out of the ground, leaving a great valley. He shook himself violently, then he pushed together the rocks to raise the Great Hill where the Old Gods live. He helped create mortals. Balumbasta fought against Vovisibor, but his strength was insufficient. He is famous for his great burning spear and for his sons, Vangono and Varama.
DuTukkos is the god who tamed the ancient Arcos River and brought back the things which mankind needs to live with it. He is worshiped by anyone who makes their living on the river, including fishermen, merchants, basket weavers, and other weeders, and the few rice farmers of the region.
This ancient goat-riding god and his tri-formed wife Sekana are worshiped by the dry farmers of Kostaddi. They have virtually no worshipers among the urban population.
The Great God of the peasants of the West Reaches, Turos is recognized as the God of Power. He raised the mountains, varved the rivers, and shaped the first temples. He once went into the underworld and defeated Derdromus, and took away all the treasures and freed Oria and the other goddesses of Life. He gave laws to humans and was blessed by Idovanus. Turos is worshiped in conjunction with his wife, who is usually Oria the Grain Goddess, and any other lesser deities in seasonal rites and propitiatory rites.
Vestkarthan the Deep is the God of the Vent, a great volcano in Caladraland. He is a great and lusty fighter, known for his ability to consume great quantities of anything. He was defeated by Argan Argar and forced to build the Palace of Black Glass for the Only Old One. His cult acknowledges him as a local name for Lodril. He is the father of Caladra and Aurelion.
A form of Turos. Farmers going to saird came from many places and knew Turos in many different ways. To get the best advantage for themselves in their precarious colonial existence, they worked and summoned this more sharply defined version of their god, who taught them a new set of rites which could be used in the new land. Later, when Hon-eel settled Oraya, she summoned the same god to help her.
Solf is the polluted fire, the burner of unclean substances. He is the volcano, burnt out due to decadence, and worshiped by commoners in Teshnos. His worshipers practice sexual deviance, gluttony, and abuse numerous intoxicants including alcohol, opium, and psychedelic spices. Ideally, they should die through these excesses. Solf teaches the Death of the Self. The Death of the Self must be strictly licensed for, if uncontrolled, it leads to massive depopulation as devotees transmigrate into new bodies.
